Saying Goodbye To A Decade

If you’re lucky enough and you get there, your 30s. It’s a round number so people usually dedicate more attention to the this specific birth day. They practicaly expect, almost demand, you give the most awesomest party ever, round op couple of dozent people and party like you’re (ironically) 20. But now that I think about this, it really sounds (and it is) stupid.

Most people would say to me like: “this is where your age really starts to show”. But it’s not just physical appearance or health, but also mental and intellectual maturity. And I’m really glad that my 20s are over.

By end of 20s, a person usually develops character, based on the past 10 years of its existence. Many do, and unfortunately some don’t. I am sometimes really surprised by the immaturity of some individuals, even in their early 30s.

And yet, only after days before my birthday, I took the time to answer to some of the basic questions about me: what are my true values, my life principles, my long-term goals … which is sad. I’ve been a ‘scientific’ person my whole life but only recently really understood what does it mean to be spiritually connected with oneself. Modern life sort of puts this very important topic for self-development and self-actualization aside. And I’m not talking about faith, but a self-reflection of your past decade. Knowing myself means knowing what I really want.

What Changed?

What I’ve Learned?

Up Next

I’ve got high hopes for the next 10 years. They say 30s are the worst years. Let’s see :-)
